Step 1: Downloading and Installing the Tor Browser

Head to the Tor Project home page and downland and install the tor browser:

Step 2: Installing the Reload Every Mozilla Plug-in

Using the Tor Browser go to the following Mozilla plug-in recourse center and download the reload every plug-in:

Install and restart the Tor Browser.

Step 3: Generating Periodic Fake Views on a Website Using Tor Browser

Now navigate to the targeted web page and right click on the background, select reload every X number of seconds.

Inside a the Tor Network your IP will automatically change in 10 minuets or so, so you can generate several fake hits with different identities. You can also program your mouse to move on its own to alter your IP manually using the MouseController software.

Step 4: Generating a New Identity (IP)

You can program your mouse to get a new identity every Y seconds. In addition you can run multiple Tor Browser on a single computer and multiply this effect. This mechanism will generate false traffic to the targeted web page from multiple sources.

    please read my comment about using tor and imacros...if u wish to lock tor for some specific geo targets, after configuring tor ports, use this:

    - find in tor folder torrc file and add this:

    ExitNodes {us}
    StrictNodes 1

    this is for getting only traffic from usa but u can choose whatever geo target u like

    for more info, please read this:

    good luck!

    Is there a way to make it so your mouse clicks on a link within the website? Otherwise you're going to havea huge bounce rate if you do this which makes things look suspect. Thanks!

    Did you make any progress with that?

    Good point, you could probably create a random function that could change X and Y mouse coordinates within a controlled space on your screen.
